Moldavite is a volcanic glass that forms due to the collision of a meteorite and the Earth's crust. Named for the Moldau river in Czechoslovakia, near the place it was first discovered, moldavite is the only known tektite glass (glass formed as the result of an interplanetary collision) suitable for faceting into gemstone and presents a deep, moss-green color. Believed by some to have powerful metaphysical characteristics, this stone is credited with transformational power, with activating dreams and the heart chakra, and offering emotional balance and more.
